.oveable by her open, generous disposition,
which would not allow her to injure anoth-
er, even to gratify that ruling passion.-I
Some said that Grace thought herself suf-
ficiently handsome,e and termed it vanity.
.True, perhaps, when each Sabbath morning
found her ready decked for the sunny walk
to the parish church on the hill side, or the
week day's evening saw her in her little
chamber window plying her needle-yes,
perhaps then, as she caught *a side-long
glance at herself in the little mirror, she
might think it no great wonder that the
young men gazed as they passed her,, or
ihe; elookd so coriou-il at the bow-pots
and flowering geraniums perched on the
sill of her casement-perhaps, too, she
might think they cast a glance beyond !-
But was this vanity? No.. Grace was
as.free of that hateful quality as the bird
which carolled so- joyously in his bright
cage on the 'cottage wall. Vanity cannot
be justly attributed to those who are only
conscious of possessing the qualities which
are theirs in reality, but to those alone who
boast themselves of perfections which they
can never hope to possess. Such was the
case with those who termed Grace vain.
One fine autumn evening she sat as usual
beside her geraniums, over which was hung
her little bird, Pet; but the leaves of the
former-hungdroopingly, as though to ask
of their sweet mistress the usual drop of
spring water, and poor Pet chirrupped amid
'hopped-from perch to perch, and ruffled his
yellow feathers to attract her attention-
but. in vain. No cooling drop greeted the
sickly 1:-if-n:. inv finger placed a bit- of

her eyes were fixed full on poor- Pet and
his 6.mii [in:i'ii plants, she neither saw one
nor ti- o:'i:. And whither were her
i,,,.-il wandering ? Only into-a neignh-

the sun was beginning to dip hit bright
head beneath the blue tops o01 the neighbor-
ing hills. .It was a very pleasantlane,b'ut
as its were bounded by h:gh hawthorn and
wild rose bushes, it may be supposed that
Grace did'not go there for the sake of any
beautiful prospect, for her whole height
was not more than the top of the banks'on
which the-bushes grew. For what, then,
did she go there ? In truth it. was that
there generally accompanied her thither a
very pleasant companion--not her mother
-not on'e of the neighbor's daughters.-
No : but a young man, the son of a farmer
not far distant.'
Yes, the truth may as well be told. Grace
had given, or thought she had given, her
little heart to this companion of her strolls;
arid, indeed, any, one to look at him,,might
imagine a better choice could not be made.
Tall, handsome, and athletic he was, and
his eye'beamed when he looked upon her.
'Iut iio'?; .who knew him better than Grace,
said that he was wild and fickle. Neither
did they scruple to warn her of that knowl-
edge. .But Gracewould not believe. How
could she-, when.shesaw that although they
spoke against him, they were always rea-
dy to' welcome him to their houses ? Be-
sides, there was an eloquence Tar ;trc p.-'"V
ertuL to the heart" and understanding of
Grace-more eloquent, more easily belief
ved, than aught they could utter. Yes, the
eye and tongue of Wil lam Clively were
the mo nitors rost eae'rly sought, and
most ,i'ii1" listened, to when ound.-

ed to pay the most profound submission,
because that humility had never been for-
ced, but ever won from her by love. That
being was he;'- ..he- !
She had now been sittifig in this-deep
reverie some ten miinutes,.from which.-she
was roused by a light hand being laid onil
her shoulder. The blood niounted -to her
temples aed cheeks, for she knew, without
raising, her" eyes, that it was her-mother-
and that mother's eye was reading her in-
nermost heart. She also knew she had
naught to fear, for though at this moment
her little heart had been rebelling, her pa-
rent's chiding was one of gentleness.
Grace, love," spoke thie mother, gent-
ly placing her hand on the half downcast
head, why do you not go forth this eve-
ning ?- See, the sun has almost lost his
last bit of crimson in the deep gray. Come,
love, you have been sewing all day. Just
threw your scral around you and walk. in
our garden."
"I would rather not, mamma," answer-
ed Grace, in a low tone, turning her head

quickly added, I will water my trees and
chirrup to Pet a little, for he seems to have
the mopes."
"And how comes it that he has the-
mopes, love," again spoke the mother.
Ah I see, mamma,"returned the now
half tearful, half smiling maiden ;. I see
you have been reading my heart, and that
it is useless to keep any thing from you.-
But though you have seen part that was
p .-i, there, you cannot tell all.?'
"- .ut I can guess, Grace, and that, per-.
cliance, will do as well-. I doubt. not you
thought me cruel-very inconsiderate in
not.allowing you to have quite your own
way ; and I doubt not that you thought I
knew very little about it ; but sit down, love,
and Iwill tell you a little passage in my
own life, and after that I shall leave you
to judge for yourself, only .first assuring
you that I have every proof, that V. di,.,,,
Clively is very wild, and his father quite
unable to support him in his present extra-
vagance. ;See here, love, I have brought
my knitting ; so take up your work from
the Window sill, and thus, while we are'
quite industrious, I will proceed to tell you
that my sketch commences when I was a-
bout a twelve month older than you are
now.
At that time, Grace, I was circumstan-
ced, too, somewhat as you are. You un-
derstand me, .love !" Grace blushed and
smiled. I had a rebellious heart, too-
and there was one for whom it was rebel-
lious-one whom it had set up as the idol
.of its idolatry, and one whom, unfortunate-
ly, neither of my parents approved. But
yet, Grace, I own thatI thought my knowl-
edge of his habits far exceeded theirs ; and
all I knew of him was fair and open -
Things continued thus for above eighteen
months, at the end of which time my mind
was fearfully opened to his vices-he com-
mitted a forgery and absconded ; though it
is probable, had he staid, no injury would
have awaited him, for his friends, Who
were wealthy and powerful, made op the
sum for which lie had risked so much, and
paid it. Grace, it was soei time, eve-
then, before I could perfectly win myl
heart from its idolatry ; but it has seen its
error, and my mind was m~de up to over-
come such perversity, and I did. Yes,
ie1 ; I knew what it was to feel cher-
ished affections warring against my own
convictions of right. You will, perhaps,
say he had deserted me, and it might be
that pride rose superior to neglect and
slight ; blt not so. He did not desert me
-he did not slight me ; for though all oth-
ers were ignorant of his destination, I
knew whither he ihad fled, and from thence
received a letter full of affection and repen-
tance for- past -follies. Put, Grace, had 1
forgiven, or rather overlooked his vice, (for
[-did forgive,) I never could have placed
confidence in liim again ; so I wrote to him
once, but.that once was to discard him for-
ever. Fromn that time I busied myself in
work, in-tending my garden, in assisting
my neighbors, and indeed, in various ways
of which I had not thought before. I saw'
that people approved my conduct, too ; ev-

ery eye .. .. I ma, every tongue welcom-
ed me in joyous tones ; and in time my
heart grew joyous, and felt a lightness it
had never known till then, even in its
wildest moments of iafl'ection for the now
ufiworthy. But I did not know the fu'lness
of tire happiness I was to reap from one era
of my life till five years had elapsed.. Du-
ring that period, love, your 'dear father had
wooed me, and knowing from allthat he
was beloved and respected, he won .me, al-
though not a fiftieth part so handsome or
so engaging in his manners'as he of whom
I have been speaking, Buthe soon taught
me to love him-I do not mean with the
girlish wildness I had loved bifore-but
with an affection that might last through
sorrow, sickness, death I dear Grace !"
The tears .started to the sweet eyes of
SGrace, and fell thickly upon the little bor-

PRom tr. Mobile Register.
Among the passengers for New York,
by the ship Florilian, which sailed yester-
day, is Miss Anm Wheeler, the intereatifig
protege of the Mqbile Rifle Company, It
will be in the recollection of many of our
readers, that sore -years since, on the sud-
den death of Mr. Moris Wheeler, a popu-
lar member of that volunteer corps, his
brother soldiers ignited in paying every tri-
bute of respect o his memory; and as a
further substantial and abiding testimony of
their esteem, undertook the charge of rais-
ing and educating1 is daughter, then a little
child. That trui they have faithfully exe-
cuted, and have p ) bvided ample funds for
0he -increased expenditure required by
growth. Th.Lillhl.now an intelligent girl
of 10 or 11 ai, ..if age, has been sent to
the north to'receive, at the best schools
there, every/advantage of mental and moral
cultivation, such as her liberal benefactors
desire to be tow upon the orphan of their
deceased friend. We are. glad to be assur-
ed thtt this'act af noble sensibility has been
:,*:].ii .v ,-i, ,, fl..1,' and that theirprotege
c.iit.ii' all ith, s. uns of a gentle and docile
disposition,\ and the proofs ofa superior
capacity, which must gratify tha hearts of
her young protectors.

T'H GREAT WALL or CINA.-It is not
so much the plan of this stupendous work
which is so extraordinary, as tlih immense
distance of fifteen hundred miles aver which
it is extended, over mountains af two or
three thousand feet in height, and across
deep valleys and rivers. It consists of a
high mound of earth, cased on each side
with bricks or stone, with projecting mas-
sy towers at stated distances. It has been
computed that the materials of all the dwel'-
ling houses in Enliid and Scotland, sup-
posing them tt) b :.,n: million eight hun-,
dred thousand :..-'Lt, feet of inasonry or
brick work, are barely equivalent to the
bulk or solid contents of the great wall of
China. Nor are thq projecting towers ta-
ken into the calctilation. These stone,
supposing them to )continue throughout at
bow shot distances, are calculated to con-
tain as much brick work as all London.-
To give another idea of the mass of mate-
rial in this stupendous fabric, it may be ob-
served, that it is more than sufficient to
surround the circumference of the earth,
on two of its great circles, with two walls,
each six feet high and two feet thick !

Men nieasure their charities by a pecu-
liar standard. A man who has but a dol-
lar in his pocket would givr a penny for
almost any purpose; A man, if he had a
hundred dollars, e ight have tha one carry
it higher and there copies a falling off. One
hundred dollars would B considered too
large a sum for him iwho has tei tliouand;
and tdn thousand wold be dieemied most
miraculous from a thain worth eone hundred
thouisand-yet the ruoportion is the same
throughout, ant the poor man's penny, tilhe
widow's nfitdi is more than the rich inan's
higli-soundlmi arid trnlpeted benefaction.

FLORIDA.
We published a day or two since a par-
igraph stating that there was some pros-
pect of the success of Gen. Macomb's mis-
sion, the object of which was to bring about
by treaty, a termination of hostilities with
hle Semninoles. In the Savannah Georgi-
ian of the 23d, we have the following addi-
tional information 6 n the subject :
Chittee Emathia, (Snake Lawyer,) and
Ochee Hajo, (Mad Ghat,) are the chiefs
brought up by Col. Harney from Cape
['lorida, as representatives of Sam Jones
And party, and other Indians below. They
have been taken by Col. H. to Fort King,
to see Gen. Maeomb, and 'state that Sam
Jones expressed himself highly pleased
with the terms of the proposed treaty.-
Difficulties will no doubt be speedily set-
tled., A number of chiefs have been to
Fort King to see Gen. Maeomb, and all
are delighted with the prospect of peace.
We further learn from gentlemen from
the Territory, that it is reported that a tem-
porary line will be drawn from' the head
waters ofPeas Creek (which empties into
the lower waters of Charlotte's Harbor)
to Cape Cable, and that the Indians will
be permitted to occupy temporarily the
country embraced by this temporary line
on the East, and the ulf 1and Peas Creek
on the West and North West, It is sup-
posed that two regiments of troops will be
retained in the territory, to protect the set-
tlers and enforce the provisions of the trea-
ty.

We learn from the Peoria (Illinois) Re-
gister of the 4th inst. that a party of twelve
young men left that place on the Ist inst.
bound for Oregon. Upon reaching the
Columbia, the party will proceed to, take
possession, as American citizens, of the
most eligible points, and make settlements.
These -claims' (to use a pioneer.phrase)
will be held in common, until recognized
by the United States. Should any of the
party, however, previously become dissat-
isfied, he will be at liberty to leave, but his
interest in the possession thus claimed will
be forfeited.

It does.not at all surprise us when hear-
ing that bluelight editors of the east have

CRITICSMt.-lThe Pennsylvanian very
justly remarks, that in criticising a book
you -are at liberty to remark on every

must only look to its general tone and

must write whether the spirit moves him

TO OUR PATRONS.
The Printer wants money," is a notice
-so frequently brought to the view of the
readers of newspapers, that we are .almost
ashamed to use it; but necessity knows
no law," and we are compelled to say to
our respected patrons, that we want mo-
ney"-we want it to pay those who have
furnished us ,with paper, and for other
purposes equally pressing, and trust to the
justice and honor of our subscribers that we
shall not be disappointed.
.C In the course of two or three weeks,
will give our subscribers personal eall.-
As our bills are'small to them, but all in all
to us, and We incur considerable trouble
and expense in calling upon them, shall
we not rely upon each one to be prepared
to cash them. As many as can-conveni-
ently, however, will oblige us by calling
at the office.

gr:y Gentlemen who hold subscription
papers for the Democrat, will oblige us by
sending us a list of the names upon them
immediately, in order thhat 'we may deter-
thne as to the i'mp'ovement of our paper.
We trust that 'bur friends have, and will
'exett 'thei-elves a little in this matter.

Mr. PARSONS, of the Sefiate, Dr. STRO-
RECKER, of the House, and WILLIAM F.
PACKER, Esq. will please- accept our
thanks for their kind attention in fifrnish-
ing us with public Documents..

Mr. Meucci, an Italian gentleman, who
has been delivering lectures on the Sci-
ence of Physiognomy," it wvill be seen by
his advertisement, in ,this paper,- will re-
inain in town a few days. We had the
pleasure only to he r him one evening, but:
we understand that our'citizens who have
attended his lectures regularly, were high-
ly gratified. Mr, Meuccei is a gentleman
of pleasing nianner and address, and if
there is any truth in the science, of which
we are not capable of judging, appears to
liAve studied and understands it.

VIRGINIA ELECTION.
The result 6f the Election in this Stafe,
after perhaps one 6f the most animated con-
tests ever.had in the "Old Dominion," las
resulted rnost triumphantly to .the cause of
;democracy. Of the fifteen Congressmen
known to be elected the Dmocrats have
carried 10 nid the Federalists 5. Six dis-
tricts remain to bie heard from, which in the
last Congress were represented by 4 dem-
ocrats, 1 conservative and 1 whig. Dem-
er'atic' gain certainly two and probably
four members of Congress.
In the House of Delegates-75 ouit of
120 counties heard from-the parties stand
42 Democrats, 44 Whigs and Conserva-
tives-which were last year represented
by 28 Democrats, 58 Whigs and Conser-
vatives. The Federal majority on joint
ballot last year was 26-this year it is sup-
posed the democratic majority will be over
10.
Thus is a complete revolution effected in
Virginia, which will secure the election of
a democrat to the U. S. Senate, and a dem-
ocratic Governor. The 'odious' sub-trea-
sury scheme is not so desperately unpopu.
lar with the people notwithstanding all the,
clamor of the Federalists.

There appears to be considerable stir
and excitement in Harrisburg in conse-
quence of the investigation in progress be-
fore a committee of the House of Repre-
setitatives, into the conduct of the late
board of Canal Commissioners, We are
assured that some astounding disclosures
of fraud and villany are about to come to
light. The anticipation of this, has caus-
ed considerable fluttering to the federalists
of the Senate, and in order to draw the at-
tention of the public from the evidence of
peculation about to be exhibited, they have
raised a committee of inquiry into the con.
duct of the present board of Commission-
ers---alleging that they have been guilty of
official misconduct' tyranny and oppres.

HEADACHE, SICK OR NERVOUS.
Sgcr tThe extraordinary reputation tha
Dr. Spohn'srcmedy for this distressing coa
plaint is every day giaTiing is certainly a
matter of much astonishment. That so much
suffering should have existed for ages with-
out any discovery' of an -. !C.:u iij preventive
or'cure, is truly a subject of much regret,
but Dr. S. now assures the public that such
a remedy has been invented as will convince
the most credulous. Thl,- jrihiil k- upon
whih it acts ar'simple.'rIl l.i. 11 is an
admitted fact that .this complaint, whether
called Sick Headache or NervousiHeadache
arises primarily from the stomach---those
wlho think they have the Nervous Headache
may rest assured that this organ, the stom-
ach, is the first cause, that the system inas
become vitiated or debilitated, through the
stomach, and-that only through the same
channel must they expect a restoration of
the natural ,n il :,1il,, i' n 'ir,,:i '- .f'the sys-
tem. This object, Dr. Spohn's remedy is
eminently calculated to attain. 'I'he truth of
this position cannot be controverted, and the
sooner sufferers with the headache become
convinced of it, the sooner will their suffer-
ings end in restoration of health. Dr. Spohn
pledges his professional reputation on: this
fact. 'The remedy may be had of apothe

Brandeth'S 7 getable nivir

DOCTOR WM. BRANDETH spent
thirty years in ,experiment and labo-
rious research into the medical properties
of the numediou plants which- compose the
VegetabTe @indlom, his object being to
compose a ,:.'-:i: which should at once
purify and remdye by purgation a bad hu
rmors from 'the blood and the bowels, and
whoever take these pills and 'perseveres
will find that'Dr. Brandeth has fully attain-
ed his philaiithropi object. It is now an
absolute an A known fact that every disea.ae
dre ;dlhhou:ii arising from many causes, re-
auced to tili one grand effect, namely, im-
purity of -the blood. Dr. Brandeth assures
every one;who reads this that it is his opin-
ion, and that opinion is founded on experi-
ence, a i i i:-c. pills will not only cure this
disease buit will' restore the body to the
primitive state 6OFhealth enjoyed by the pha-
triarchs of old; and life by. a continued care
to keep the b-o'dy in htalthfiwith, them may'
be prolonged much beyond what it is now.
Fourteen tlfousafid.testimoniaj'shave been
received from individuals of the highest re-
spectability who have been cured of various
diseases since their introduction into the
United States.
Such is the reputation of Brandeth's U-"
niversal pills, that a counterfeit article is
made and- sold asgenuine. To guard a-
gainst counterfeits, remember that none are :
'gen ine but those sold by my advertised a-
gents who. have an engraved certificate of

H.*pItE subscriber has seen posted up,
._ in different places, bills of the "NA-
POLEON" horse, with his name to them
in such a manner as might lead the public
to suppose he had some interest ill the same.
Now, in order that the public may not be
deceived, he hereby gives notice that he
has no interest whatever in the said horse
-that he never had any interest or owned
any part of the same-and that he will bv
in no respect accountable for any claims
for keeping or attending him in any way.
The horse belongs to IENRY F. TAIMMANY,
the sole owner, who is justly liable to all
persons as such, and who ought not to be
ashamed to back his own property. The
subscriber is always disposed to put the
saddle on the right horse.
